Heard of the Bards of the Blogosphere by now? Of course you have.  We (because I'm a member too), are a group of Indian-based bloggers, randomly brought together by Blogadda, the Indian blogging hub. We are co-writing a novella.  It's more than two thirds underway and is an exciting story of drama, intrigue, romance suspense and.....well, you'll just have to read it to find out.  The Bards are taking part in the Game of Blogs, an activity promoted by Blogadda to #CelebrateBlogging, with thirty teams in the novella writing fray.  Despite eliminations, we're still in the game.  Let's meet the Bards, one by one. Last Wednesday, we met Dr Roshan Radhakrishnan. Thursday, we met the vivacious Divyakshi Gupta from Mumbai.  Friday, we met the multi-faceted Priyanka Roy Banerjee!  Saturday, it was the turn of the enigmatic Nupur Maskara.  Sunday, we had the talented Sulekha Rawat.  On Monday, we had a little break from the 'Bard A Day' series as MBB welcomed an historical fiction author.  Wednesday, we met the unassuming Arpita Nayak.  Thursday, we met  witty Priyanka Victor.  After two days of Puja holidays, meet our Bard of deep and sensual prose, the inimitable Datta Ghosh.

Can you share a little about yourself? 
I am a learner. Whatever I have been; a student, a team lleader, an HR or a Blogger, I have always believed that if you are learning then you are growing and if you are growing then you are living. I am a writer and traveller by passion and soul.

How are you enjoying being a Bard of the Blogosphere?
It sends me back to my school and college days when we brain stormed, discussed fervently and passionately and created a thing. Off late as we grow up we forget this amazing feeling So, thanks Bards for making me relive the best days of my life.

How does it feel to cowrite a novella?  Have you done this before?
It feels amazing. It is a great learning platform. No, I have not done this before.

Do you know the ending to the story?
Well, I know and then I do not know....As we go on writing there can be many beautiful and interesting turns as we are focussing on individual strengths here.

Can you sum up this experience in a Tweet sized sentence?
The right amount of cooks is just making this recipe delectable by the day!
